Only option with gearing. I wanted to hear my bike differently.
Bradley G on Jun 23, 2020
Out of my choices for a sprocket it was the only one that came with an aluminum sprocket. As well as the 15/48 ratio

The bike had a 520 conversion on it. The aluminum sprocket is completely chewed up. So I bought steep and a proper length chain. Vortex makes great stuff.

Good quality and detailed discription of product. Easy and thorough checkout process as well.
A M on Jun 25, 2017
I want more pull and top speed. An aluminum sprocket with 15/48 will do the trick. A 15/49 would be better but a 15/48 works well!

Do I need to lube the chain after install?
SHAWN W on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Shawn, thank you for the question. This is actually a question with lots of controversy. Most chains come pre-lubed but many people are torn in between installing as is and only lubing when it becomes obvious it is needed, others claim to lube right away. I personally would recommend wiping the outside grease/lube and re lubing the links to be safe.

Great chain and sprocket
Install was easy, Perfect match-up prior to install, Sprockets are much lighter and has made my bike a tad bit faster, 5 and 6th gear hardly have to kick down in order to get going after having to slow down, engine has less of a growl since the change, Happy with my purchase!!!

Excellent Chain and Sprocket set, no cutting!
This chain and the sprockets are very well made. Both sprockets are steel. My FZ1 previously had a Vortex aluminum rear sprocket but it was done. So I searched around and found this set up. It is really nice to get new sprockets and the proper length chain. I got the black finish chain and it looks really good on my black scooter. As usual this is a good quality Vortex product.

I really like the chain and sprocket but I wanted to pick a different combo for my rear sprocket they didn't have a ready made selection for a 16 front 41 rear. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Very fast delivery. Excellency service
